Hope Lehman

I am a biracial hip hop feminist dedicated to community empowerment and ending all forms of oppression through action, dialogue, technology and art. I was born in Sacramento, California and graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz in 2009 with a degree in Feminist Studies and Sociology. I have lived in Oakland since the fall of 2010 and am honored to be a part of the vibrant local art, entrepreneurship, and tech community. You can find me haunting the downtown streets of Oakland taking over the dance floor or tinkering away in my art studio next to a good sci-fi flick.
